Blockchain X Origami

Blockchain is no longer tomorrow’s future megatrend it is here, today, and has the potential to change technology forever.

 

In a recent Gartner survey within the logistics industry over 60% of respondents said they found Blockchain interesting but didn’t know what to do with it. Understanding the opportunities and applications of Blockchain is at the core of Blockchain X, a fresh new event taking place at Digital Transformation EXPO in October.

 

Covering subjects such as performance, resilience, integration and platforms, Blockchain X will provide the information you need to harness Blockchain technology for your enterprise. If your interest is in developing for Blockchain then you should check out our Developer X event hosted alongside Blockchain X.

View Speaker

Dr Hannah Fry

Dr Hannah Fry is a lecturer in the Mathematics of Cities at the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis at UCL. She works alongside a unique mix of physicists, mathematicians, computer scientists, architects and geographers to study the patterns in human behaviour - particularly in an urban setting. Her research applies to a wide range of social problems and questions, from shopping and transport to urban crime, riots and terrorism.

Alongside her academic position, Hannah is an experienced public speaker giving conference keynotes and taking the joy of maths into theatres and schools. Hannah’s mathematical expertise has led to the development of fascinating documentaries including ‘Britain’s Greatest Invention ’, ‘Horizon: How to Find Love Online’, ‘Horizon: 10 Things You Need to Know About the Future’, ‘City in the Sky’ (BBC2), ‘Trainspotting Live’, ‘The Joy of Data’, ‘Climate Change By Numbers’ and ‘Calculating Ada: The Countess of Computing’ (BBC4). For radio, Hannah presents ‘Music By Numbers’ (BBC R1), ‘The Curious Cases of Rutherford and Fry’ and ‘Computing Britain’ (BBC R4).

As an author, Hannah has written two books: ‘The Indisputable Existence of Santa Claus: The Mathematics of Christmas’ (Transworld, 2016) which followed ‘The Mathematics of Love: Patterns, Proofs, and the Search for the Ultimate Equation’ (Simon & Schuster/ Ted, Feb 2015) in which Hannah brings together mathematical equations to provide answers to such questions as: What’s the chance of us finding love? What's the chance that it will last? How does online dating work, exactly? When should you settle down? How can you avoid divorce? When is it right to compromise? Can game theory help us decide whether or not to call?

Junior Research Fellow

University of Cambridge

View Speaker

Dr Beth Singler

Dr Beth Singler explores the social, ethical, philosophical and religious implications of advances in Artificial Intelligence and robotics. As a part of the project she is producing a series of short documentaries: Pain in the Machine, Friend in the Machine and Good in the Machine are complete. Pain in the Machine won the 2017 AHRC Best Research Film of the Year Award.

Beth is also an Associate Research Fellow at the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence, collaborating on a CFI/Royal Society project on ‘AI Narratives’ with Claire Craig, Stephen Cave, Sarah Dillon and Kanta Dihal. In 2017/18 she will be on the advisory board for the RSA/Google DeepMind Citizen Juries.

Beth has appeared on Radio4’s Today, Sunday and Start the Week programmes discussing AI, robots, and pain. In 2017 she spoke at the Hay Festival as one of the ‘Hay 30’, the 30 best speakers to watch. She was also one of the Evening Standard’s Progress 1000 – the list of the most influential people in various fields.

Beth is an experienced social and digital anthropologist, and her first academic book is a ground breaking in-depth ethnography of the ‘Indigo Children’ – a New Age re-conception of both children and adults using the language of science, evolution, and spirituality.

Welcome to Blockchain X

  • Blockchain 101

    You’ve heard of Bitcoin, Cryptocurrency or Ethereum? Well Blockchain drives them all. It’s the technology that improves the efficiency and reliability of transactions and exchange of data as a ‘decentralised, distributed and incorruptible digital ledger’. Still need more clarity? Join us to understand what Blockchain is, how it works and what the application for the enterprise are now and in the future.  

    Performance

    The performance between decentralised transactions differ from one to another due to increases in security, interoperability and inclusiveness. The performance varies so analysis performance in Blockchain-based systems is a key area of focus and development.

    Resilience

    The resilience in Blockchain lies in the back up of transactional data where it’s copied hundreds or even thousands of times at different locations across the world not just the city it was made in like London or Singapore or where other people are participating in the blockchain in that market.

    Integration

    Businesses are already increasing the efficiency, security, and transparency of their brands by integrating Blockchain technology into their existing production and shipping processes. It’s important to connect Blockchain to various systems such as ERP, CRM and other back-end legacy systems to allow a seamless customer transaction.

    Platforms

    The number of Blockchain platforms are increasing by the day.
